This lady had to give up her university course when she fell pregnant. Her little girl is now 20 months old and she returns to uni this year to continue studying. She aims to improve both their lives and wants to be a teacher. While at uni her mother will share childcare duties together with a nursery placement. She is a sensible and caring mother, determined to do this. The request is for a dyslexia assessment by the uni so that uni will give her the extra help/equipment she needs.

Mother is single parent with learning difficulties and depression with sons aged 9, 8 and 4 who generally behave well at school. At home she struggles to manage their behavior and they have written all over the walls and have broken her bed so she is sleeping downstairs on settee. She wants the boys each to have their own room upstairs (at present they sleep in the same room because of the mess). She has rent arrears but is working to pay it off from her benefits.
